The Office of Student Research, directed by Dr. John N. Forrest, Jr., assists students with the planning, implementation and completion of research leading to a thesis. This office provides three types of stipend support for student investigators:
- Summer research stipends
- Short-term student research stipends
- One-year student research fellowships
Furthermore, the School of Medicine encourages many students to consider a fifth year of medical school, devoting it exclusively to research training. Students present their research in poster sessions and oral presentations at the annual Student Research Day held in May.
Dr. Forrest is available, by appointment, to advise and assist students in any of these matters.
